Each week I watch the Badger game, while also reading a live chat/blog of the game on the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinal website. And each week, about 90% of the "fans" complain about something. Most of the time, if a play doesn't break for 20+ yds, they complain about the play calling (and anytime a big play does break, most of them tear their rotator cuff trying to pat themselves on the back, claiming they "called it"). But a running stream of nonsense have been the calls for Bielema to be fired.
moranis hit it right on the head. The Badgers have consistantly out performed their talent, that speaks directly to coaching. The "fans" assumed that since we had a few players pan out (Montee Ball, Russel Wilson, JJ Watt), that the team as a whole should be a National Championship contender and the only thing holding "us" back was Bielema. I don't think Bielema was/is a top tier coach, but he was solid and it was ridiculous for all the calls for him to be fired. Here's hoping the Badgers can lure Chryst away from Pittsburgh.
